The [False] Gospel Of Me

Blaise Pascal QuoteThe Travis Ferguson Pastoral Dictionary of Opinions, Thoughts, and Meanderings defines the “Gospel of Me” as:

gos·pel · of · me |’gäspəəv mē


  1. A gimme gimme Gospel that wants all the good God has to offer without any of the sacrifice.
  2. A gotta gotta Gospel where an individual looks to his or her own self for salvation, rather than to Jesus.

This week we to continue to develop a spiritual habit called “Lectio Divina” (Spiritual Reading):

  • Reflect/Meditatio
  • Respond/Oratio
  • Rest/Contemplatio
  • Resolve/Incarnatio

Pastor Burkey & Pastor Travis have found Lectio Divina to be a powerful tool for them to hear God speaking into their daily life as each of them engages in His Word. Here are the guidelines that they use, and the following are six days of passages for this week:


Day 1: Read/Lectio: Philippians 2:12; Phrase: ________________________________________

Day 2: Read/Lectio: Philippians 2:13; Phrase: ________________________________________
